Hello Everyone there some exciting news that I need to share!

At the end of August I will be taking the cast of Akoma with me to Columbus, Ohio to present Akoma for the KMP Artists Independent Showcase for the Arts Midwest Conference. This is a major opportunity for the group and we are really thankful to be able to make this a reality. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

I am hosting a Black Star Weekend to raise money to take Akoma to the US. Here's what is happening!
